Jonah Hill was supposed to be Paul DePodesta but they must have changed his character.

And I thought Soderbergh was tied to this project

They were filming at the coliseum in Oakland while the A's were on the road. I sold my old A's media guide to the movie's prop master a while ago, and I was glad to see that the project get going.

Paul DePodesta protested how he was portrayed so they modified/fictionalized it. Not sure if it was done as a favor to him or in reaction to any threats. Either way, people who know who they mean.

god, I hope they're still planning to use an animated version of Bill James. It just sounds hilarious.

Phillip Seymour Hoffman as Art Howe?

I guess they're going more on acting ability rather than resemblance.

Hoffman is pretty damn good at everything he does.

Yeah, they more or less assembled name actors who didn't look anything like the people they are playing. Brad Pitt looks nothing like Beane, either. Jonah Hill as DePodesta was the biggest joke, seing as Hill is known for being a short, fat, slovenly stoner and DePodesta is tall, trim, cleancut and doesn't even drink.

You'd never tell by the way he ran the Dodgers.

I honestly really want to see this movie, but it seems like one of those cursed projects that takes years to finish, if it even wraps at all. I read the book and the original Zallian script and though they were different I thought they were both great. Soderbergh's version would be good for PBS or MLB network, but who would pay $12 to see Dykstra get interviewed?

And the guy they cast for Justice actually comes reasonably close looks-wise.
